Love Truffles? If so, then be sure to visit Eataly, one of the largest high quality food halls in the world, on Sunday, November 21, when the food hall celebrates "White Truffle Day".
Eataly is throwing a storewide celebration as part of their month-long celebration of the Italian region of Piedmont (a region well known for its truffles).
White truffles are in season from October through the end of December, and at their absolute peak flavor-wise in November. They are found almost exclusively in the mountains and foothills of Northern Italy. Italian White Piedmont Truffles are among the most expensive and prized of all the truffles varieties (see "What are Truffles" and "Knowing Your Truffles: A Guide to Colors, Regions and Flavors"). A member of the fungi family, truffles are typically extremely expensive because of their scarcity.
